Coaching Top Performers

One of the terrific benefits of my job is that I get to frequently coach top performers. It is simultaneously a pleasure and a challenge. The pleasure comes from interacting with people who are at the top of their industry and, at the top of their game. The challenge comes in the form of helping them unlock even more of themselves and their talent. The unlocking of jewels that top performers have tucked away usually present themselves after interesting questions have been asked. That is one of the big functions of leadership and coaching – asking great questions. Another item to consider is how you will connect with your top performers. By this, I mean finding out if they prefer formal or informal coaching; do they want in person or tele-coaching – or both; are they game for preparing written summaries of the formal coaching sessions after they take place? Wanna become a better coach for top performers? Tell less, ask more.
